Francis A.   Trzcinski
Francis A. Trzcinski passed away Friday, July 6, 2018 at the St. Catherine Center. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Wednesday, July 11, at 10 a.m. at St. Jerome Catholic Church. Burial with full Military Honors from the U.S. Air Force will follow at Waco Memorial Park.

Francis was born July 17, 1924 in Hartford, Connecticut. He joined the U.S. Army Air Corps when he was 17 and served as a mechanic and tail gunner on B-17 bombers in World War Two. After World War Two, he returned to Connecticut where he continued to serve in the Connecticut Air National Guard. He returned to active duty in the Air Force at the beginning of the Korean conflict and served in Korea maintaining F-86 Sabre jets. After the end of the Korean Conflict, he stayed on active duty, and in 1958, when he was stationed in England, he met Lorraine, who was his wife for 56 years. During the Vietnam Conflict, he served in aircraft maintenance on Air Force bases in England, Nebraska, Idaho, New Jersey, and Kansas. Before his retirement in 1971 after 28 years of service, he achieved the rank of Chief Master Sergeant.

Francis and his family then moved to Robinson. He was an active member of the American Legion, The Veterans of Foreign Wars, and The Knights of Columbus. He was also an active volunteer at Providence Hospital.

Francis was preceded in death by his wife Lorraine in 2017. He is survived by his children Stephen and Leslie, his grandchildren Nikkie, Christian, and Miguel, and his great-grandchildren, Angelina, Serenity, and Jace.
